Skyrim Anniversary Edition: A patch is coming to fix a serious bug

Skyrim Anniversary Edition

Within days of The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim's Anniversary Edition launch, many players have found that certain things just never change. Just like in the original version of the game released ten years ago, even in this celebratory version of the classic Bethesda there was no shortage of so much legendary bugs. Fortunately, the company quickly realized that something was wrong as expected, and recently announced the arrival of a corrective patch.

After the launch of the Skyrim Anniversary Edition on November 11th, many players have begun to report a serious problem related to a serious bug that leads to a black screen when loading a save file. This problem was initially reported by a number of players who used mods in the game, but soon the bug also spread to those who were not using any mods.

In these hours Bethesda has declared that it is aware of the numerous bugs and that it is working on a solution. "We are aware of the error encountered by some PS4 players and the problem of the 'black screen. The team is already working on a solution for these problems. It takes a little longer than we would like, but we hope to solve them as soon as possible ".

Bethesda went on to say that the patch currently in the works should be ready for entry into the game early next week. We cross our fingers and hope that everything can be resolved in such a short time.

However, according to PC Gamer, the black-screen issue is now affecting players who don't have a modded game and is also showing up after completing the Civil War questline between Skyrim's two factions--the Imperial Legion and the Stormcloaks. PlayStation users are also reporting multiple freezes, infinite loading screens, as well as a glitch telling them to free up '0 kb on the system storage' to play, which is apparently a two-year-old bug.

Bethesda stated on Discord that it is aware of the numerous bugs and are working on a fix. 'We are aware of the 0kb error some PS4 players are experiencing as well as the 'black screen' issue,' it said. 'The team has been working on a fix for these (it's taking a little longer than we'd like) and hopes to have them resolved as soon as we can.' Bethesda also said that the patch is currently in the works and should be ready 'early next week.'

The Skyrim Anniversary Edition is the 'most comprehensive' version of the game to date and includes additional Creation Club content, along with new quests, armor sets, weapons, and a new fishing mechanic. Players who already own The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition are able to upgrade the game to the Anniversary Edition for free.
